The UniverCity Videos collection provides online access to 44 digitized videos of lectures, presentations, performances, and cultural and educational events from Ball State University's UniverCity programs.
Inspired by the Chautauqua adult education movement, UniverCity refers to a series of multi-day cultural programs planned by Ball State University for the benefit of the Ball State and Muncie communities that began in 1988 and occurred again in 1990, 1992, 2000, and 2002. Events included talks and lectures given by scholars, artists, advocates, and other speakers as well as artistic performances, cultural demonstrations, and panel discussions and were held both on and off campus. Themes for the five UniverCity celebrations were "An Agenda for a Living Planet," "Uncommon Ground," "Touching Home," "Time to Time," and "Celebrate Community" respectively.
This collection contains digitized versions of video recordings held in Ball State University Archives and Special Collections.
